=====================================================================
                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Moderate: python-django-horizon security and bug fix update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2014:0365-01
Product:           Red Hat OpenStack
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2014-0365.html
Issue date:        2014-04-03
CVE Names:         CVE-2013-6858 
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated python-django-horizon packages that fix one security issue and
several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack
Platform 3.0.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having Moderate
security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in
the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

OpenStack 3 - noarch

3. Description:

OpenStack Dashboard (horizon) provides administrators and users a graphical
interface to access, provision and automate cloud-based resources.
The dashboard allows cloud administrators to get an overall view of the
size and state of the cloud and it provides end-users a self-service portal
to provision their own resources within the limits set by administrators.

A flaw was found in the way OpenStack Dashboard sanitized the Instance Name
string. By embedding HTML tags in an Instance Name, a remote attacker could
use this flaw to execute a script within a victim's browser, resulting in a
cross-site scripting (XSS) attack. Note that only setups using OpenStack
Dashboard were affected. (CVE-2013-6858)

The python-django-horizon packages have been upgraded to upstream version
2013.1.5, which provides a number of bug fixes over the previous version.
(BZ#1080584)

All python-django-horizon users are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which correct these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.
